SUBJECT: RUSSIA WANTS TO SEND OBSERVER TO BLACK SEA FORUM 
 
REF: STATE 79658 
 
Classified By: Minister-Counselor for Political Affairs Kirk Augustine. 
  For Reasons 1.4 (B/D). 
 
1.  (C)  We discussed reftel May 25 with MFA Romanian Section 
Chief Igor Inyushkin.  He agreed that the U.S. and Russia 
shared common interests in the Black Sea region and 
appreciated Washington's endorsement of existing regional 
institutions, underlining Russia's hope that Moscow would be 
able to reinvigorate the Black Sea Economic Cooperation 
organization during its chairmanship.  Inyushkin reserved 
comment on BLACKSEAFOR and other questions on security 
cooperation. 
 
2.  (C)  Turning to the Black Sea Forum, Inyushkin said 
Russia was likely to send its Ambassador in Bucharest to 
attend the Forum as an observer.  Moscow still had questions 
about the Forum's value and regarded it as essentially 
duplicative of existing groups, but wanted to make sure it 
understood what the Forum was trying to accomplish before 
making any final decisions about Russia's role in the 
organization.  Inyushkin was not sure whether the Romanians 
would accept observers at the Forum's initial meeting.
